Bears even record with wins over Poteet, Sam Houston


LA VERNIA After dropping its first two district games of the season, the La Vernia Bear varsity baseball team evened its record last week by earning solid wins over Poteet and Sam Houston.

The Bears began with a trip to Poteet March 20. Jace Parker was on the hill for La Vernia, and helped hold the Aggies to just 3 runs.

La Vernia scored first in the game, earning 2 runs in the top of the first inning. Poteet came back to tie the game, though, scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the second inning. The Bears scratched 1 run in the third, and another in the fourth, and led 4-2 going into the top of the sixth inning.

The Bears turned up the heat in the sixth, scoring 3 runs in the top of the inning. Poteet came back to get 1 run in the bottom of the sixth, but La Vernia drove in 2 more runs in the seventh, and took a commanding 6-run lead. The Aggies had one final at-bat, but couldn’t score against La Vernia, and fell by the final of 9-3.

With a 2-1 district mark, the Bears welcomed the Sam Houston Hurricanes to La Vernia last Friday evening, but were anything but hospitable on the scoreboard. The Bears dished out a 14-0 thrashing of the Hurricanes, and ended the game after just four and a half innings.

The Bears began the onslaught in the bottom of the first inning, as La Vernia scored 6 runs against Sam Houston. The Bears added on another 4 runs in the bottom of the second inning, and 4 more during the bottom of the third. Both teams were scoreless in the fourth, but when Sam Houston was unable to narrow the gap in the top of the fifth, the game was called due to the 10-run rule.

Landon Richter led the Bears at the plate, as he went 3 for 3 with two doubles and a homerun. He ended the game with 4 RBIs. Charlie Kappmeyer was also 3 for 3 on the night and drove in 2 runs for the Bears. Seth Schoenert, Colby Simms, Rudy Mendoza, and Colby Skelton all went 2 for 3 from the plate, and Mendoza had a triple on the night. Schoenert and Justus Parker each had stolen bases during the game.

Time on the mound was split between Troy Lyssy and Dylan Tuten. Lyssy earned the win after three innings of work and seven strikeouts. Tuten made the most of his time in the game, as he fanned six batters in just two innings.

With the wins, the Bears improved to 5-10 on the season and are now 2-2 in District 28-3A play. Gonzales and Pleasanton were next on the schedule, and will close out the first round of district games.
